be a good thing, and french fashion used to cut it, but does anna wintour really thing that today. her nickname is nuclear wintour. that's what they called her. she should be the ambassador to china or russia. that's much better for her. >> she probably thinks you're sarcastic. >> she makes a lot of money for the president. the president obviously did well on the celebrity set. he and michelle are the darlings of vogue magazine. she's been on the cover many times. it's not surprising that anna wintour would be in their orbit. what qualifies her to be a u.s. ambassador. >> if you look at any of these choices? let's be honest. the choice for ambassador for britain for the last 15 years has been, whether it's republican or democrats has been one of the biggest donors. it's not a hugely diplomatic post. it's payback. >> of all the things that president obama's up to that rick was just talking about, this really doesn't stick in my craw. it does illustrate what we've talked about many times, greta, which is the medaling of celebrity and politics in the united states and whether it's stephen
